COE Hosts Teacher Candidates from UK

UK Teacher Candidates

Education students from Sheffield-Hallam University in Sheffield, England, are once again gaining experience as student-teachers through a cooperative exchange program with the College of Education. The four students will be working in Evans and Bulloch County schools until May 4. The students hope to build knowledge and understanding of classrooms in Georgia, and gain new teaching techniques that they will use in their future classrooms.

“This is a wonderful cultural exchange opportunity that benefits the student candidates from Sheffield-Hallam and elementary school students in Evans and Bulloch counties,” said Dr. Tom Koballa, COE Dean.  The schools participating with the student candidates are Claxton Elementary, Julia P. Bryant Elementary and Sallie Zetterower Elementary.
